Flectcher’s Cove #158 Run Report


It was run number one five eight

Parkrunners amass by the gate

At Fletcher’s you’ll catch us

It’s easy to match us

As long as you’re not running late….

(which volunteer couldn’t get out of bed?? – don’t worry, excuse accepted!)…


There was a fine lady named Susan

Who runs with splendid perfusion


In case you’ve wondered-

She’s notched up one hundred

All by herself – no collusion!

(Milestone wonder hip hip hooray!)


I’ve heard tales of a chap named Eric

His approach is far from generic

You may well ask why-

It’s his timekeeping post-rye

An approach we consider esoteric


Each Saturday starts with our run

Where you’re guaranteed to have fun

You won’t regret it

You’ll never forget it

We’ll parkrun until we’re undone..


We never fail to muster a quorum

And we run with a certain decorum

The towpath’s our habit

Print your barcode and grab it

parkrun forever our forum!


54 parkrunners, included 8 first timers, 2 barkrunners, 1 visitor on this grey pre-precipitation morning.
